Caddyshack turns 40: Heres where they filmed it in South Florida
DAVIE, Fla. If youve been to a golf course, youve either said, heard or beat to death a quote from the movie Caddyshack.The comedy starring Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase and Bill Murray was released 40 years ago Saturday, and locals may remember that much of the movie was filmed here in South Florida. The golf scenes were shot at what is now Grande Oaks Golf Club in Davie, which had been called Rolling Hills, during the fall of 1979. Ramis later said in an interview with Sports Illustrated that We kind of picked it by default. The cocaine business in South Florida was mammoth, and everyone was doing everything, Ramis recalled. Scenes were also filmed in Fort Lauderdale, at Plantation Country Club, Boca Raton Resort & Club, Key Biscayne Yacht Club and the Rusty Pelican Restaurant in Key Biscayne, according to the movies IMDB entry.
